Leadership Talk - Dr Sam Wasser

30th November – Leadership Talk

We are delighted to introduce Dr Sam Wasser from the University of Washington and Director of the Center for Conservation Biology.  Dr. Samuel Wasser is acknowledged worldwide as a pioneer of non-invasive wildlife monitoring methods, including the genetic, endocrine and detection dog techniques used by the Center. Dr. Wasser has participated in a number of conservation programs around the world, in collaboration with state, federal, and international organizations. He was coordinator of the Smithsonian Institution’s Wildlife Conservation and Management Training Program for African Nationals. He also co-edited the book Biogeography and Ecology of the Rain Forests of Eastern Africa, describing one of the most biodiverse “hot-spots” in the world.

Dr Wasser’s work is internationally respected by scientists, environmental activists, and government and non-government wildlife managers, which places him in a unique position to negotiate the kinds of conservation solutions needed in our rapidly changing world.
